Henrik Nieratschker's art and design practice is centred around a critical reflection of technological progress and development. It experiments with the aesthetic and sociopolitical potentials of new technologies to understand and highlight their current and future, social, political and cultural implications.

Through a methodology based in research, storytelling and prototyping, he develops alternative applications for these technologies, which can act as both contemporary, cautionary tales and practical examples for the future. The outcomes can range from objects, images and video to custom software and hardware, and come together in physical-visual, multimedia installations.

In addition to his solo projects, Henrik Nieratschker is cofounder of experimental design studio proto/meta and curatorial art collective Research and Waves.
